1.4" x 1.75" Soft Enamel Pin Single Posted Rubber Clasp Inspired by "Sainte Sebastienne" by Louise Bourgeois © 2021 The Easton Foundation / Licensed by VAGA at Artists Rights Society (ARS), NY French-American artist Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010) was a prolific feminist artist known for her work that explores gender and femininity and draws from her own childhood memories. While most are familiar with the artist’s large-scale sculptures, she also created a number of paintings and prints, in which the figure of St. Sebastian is a repeated subject. In this print, "Sainte Sebastienne" (1992) the martyred saint is transformed into a headless, voluptuous woman. While the original Biblical figure was shot many times with arrows while tied to a tree, Bourgeois depicts the figure in an exaggerated step, arrows instead being used to point to various curves of her body. Comes packaged with Pin Museum branded backer card, and a protective polybag.
